I don't know if the police package has been released yet, maybe someone could fill us in.

My department replaces our 12 front line patrol vehicles every two years and they have always been Crowns. They just ordered a mix of 2012 Chargers and Tahoes as replacements this year. From what I heard they were interested in the 2012 Caprices but they may have not been available on the state contract yet. (Not sure about that) I don't think our bosses are sold on the Chargers yet but I guess time will tell. I still like the Crown for looks, comfort and operability.

I'd have to say, I'm not a huge fan of it either. But, it does look nice in black and white...

Florida Highway Patrol is running the '12 Chargers as well as the previous generation. I just saw one today. Not sure about the interior but I think they look so much better with the restyled rear end. The new tailight scheme reminds me of the legendary Chryslers/Dodges/Plymouths I grew up. Even the base/civilian version looks very sharp, although with a V-6 and smaller alloy wheels.

The city/town P.D. where I live began transitioning to Impalas around 6 years ago. There are also a couple Tahoes and smaller Trailblazers for the K-9s and shift supervisor. However they are still hanging on to the last Crown Vics (both marked and unmarked) which must be '04s-'05s. Despite the age, the still look immaculate. They also instituted a take home program which seems to expand the lifespan (not being driven around the clock, etc.)

Seth. The issues with the sightlines have been addressed. They have been greatly improved. Most of the LEO's that come in to my dealership love the new chargers.
